What's your favorite scent / aroma's?
Posted by flyerduke on Tuesday, May 14, 2013 11:34 PM

There are many, but these are a few that stand out for me.

(In no particular order)

 

Freshly ground roasted coffee

Beer brewing

My wife's perfume (Opium & Paris)

The desert after a good Summer rain (pure heaven)

sautéed garlic and onions on the stove

Testors cement (red tube) the good stuff Big Smile

some pipe tobaccos

 

I'm sure there are several more, but these are off the top of my head.

Mimeographed paper

Some perfumes (lightly applied)

Cookies and cakes baking

Cinnamon
